  1. Well, sure, but it doesn't tell us much. Personally, I wouldn't mind a sequel to Andromeda, as long as they worked out most of the complaints that that game got, and maybe got some better writers.
  2. I can't think of any possible reason why this needs to be a thing. Isn't that why portable consoles exist, like the Switch? So you can take your games with you wherever you want? I'm just thinking about when GPS's first became popular, and how people were literally driving their cars into the lake because they were too busy looking at the screen and not the road. I mean, I know you apparently can't play while the car is in motion, but still. If there's a way around that, people will absolutely find it.
  3. Nope, because I didn't get into gaming until I was in college. Lucky me, apparently.
  4. I do this all the time. In a lot of the games I play, I inevitably hit a boss fight I can't beat, even on the easiest difficulty, because I'm a n00b apparently. Hopefully it's the final boss, which it often is, so I'm not missing much by looking up the ending on YouTube. Two examples that come to mind off the top of my head are Senator Armstrong at the end of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (I couldn't figure out how to get his health to stop regenerating), and this one possessed dump truck thing towards the end of Alan Wake (it makes sense in context, I swear).
  5. I definitely don't recall ever seeing a Punisher game before. I would 100% check that out, at least, regardless of who made it.
  6. I was thinking specifically of Fallout 4, actually. I could never even remember which settlements my companions were at, much less where my gear was located. And I used to keep an Excel spreadsheet for Dragon Age: Inquisition of all my squadmates' gear stats, because for some reason the game couldn't be bothered to provide that information to me on the crafting screen. So you're definitely not the only one!
  7. Citadel DLC for Mass Effect 3. I don't remember how much it is, because I wasn't the one who bought it. But it's absolutely a non-negotiable purchase for anyone who's a fan of those games. It really felt like it should have been included in the game proper.
  8. It's interesting that you guys brought up the Arkham series, because I have to wonder if some of that loyalty is just general loyalty to the Batman franchise in general, outside of that specific series of games? I mean, don't get me wrong, it's a good series. But the only reason I started playing it in the first place was because I'm just generally loyal to the Batman franchise, even though I'm really not a fan of superhero stuff in general.
  9. I used to do that, and then I kept forgetting where I put stuff. Especially in big open-world games that have infinite numbers of containers to put things in. It did make for a nice surprise when I inevitably stumbled across it later by accident, though!
  10. If I'm legitimately looking up a video walkthrough because I'm stuck in a game and don't know how to progress, if I click on the video and hear, "Hey guys, it's...!" I will immediately click off and go find one without commentary. I love YouTube, but everybody with a console and a mic thinks they're a Let's Player these days. That being said, there are Let's Players that I do follow, but I watch specifically for the commentary, not necessarily the gameplay.
  11. I would be very interested to hear if anyone's done this; Hitman strikes me as the type of games that would literally be perfect for VR.
  12. I really think it depends on what exactly is meant by "cheating guides". Are we talking about things like walkthroughs or hint guides? Or are we talking about guides to actually hack the game and make it easier, like console commands?
  13. None, except YouTube, if you count that. I do actually post comments and interact with people on there, though, I'm not just watching videos. I quit Facebook back in 2015 and never really looked back. Dabbled briefly in Twitter. Very briefly. Guess I don't really see what all the fuss is about.
  14. It was a cute line. I would have liked it even better if the PC hadn't felt the need to repeat it every single time you hit the "attack" button. Or any other button, for that matter. I think there was even a reference to it in DAI, if I recall correctly In the Ace Attorney franchise, there's a line associated with Miles Edgeworth that goes something like, "You're not a clown, you are the entire circus!" I can't recall if he actually says it in any of the games or if it was just something the fans made up, but I've definitely used that one to jokingly insult my friends on multiple occasions.
  15. You've suddenly triggered in me a very vivid memory of crawling on my hands and knees across the Mojave Wasteland in Fallout New Vegas trying to get to a vendor because I can't afford to just drop loot on the ground, but raiders are shooting at me from all directions and a popup keeps flashing in my face telling me, "You are overencumbered and can't run!" I'm a big hoarder of health items, because in every game I will inevitably get to a boss fight that I just can't beat for the life of me, and I will need every health item I can get. And even then it might not be enough. Every time I play Dragon Age Origins, I always save the Broodmother boss fight for last so I have practically the whole game to stock up on health potions. Luckily they don't take up inventory space and you can theoretically get your hands on an infinite amount of them.
  16. What EA needs to stop doing is charging me $40.00 for a Sims 4 expansion pack. Forty dollars! For one expansion pack! I don't even think I spent that much money on the vanilla game omg. I don't even think most video games are worth forty bucks.
  17. Mind = blown. I've never heard of anything like that before! That's such an interesting idea, to make a game where the difficulty of the gameplay changes depending on how you play. Does anyone know of any specific titles that do that?
  18. I set the game on the easiest difficulty level. And then if I still somehow encounter a boss I can't beat (it happens), I ragequit and look up the ending to the game on YouTube (because it almost always happens towards the end of a game). Looking at you, haunted bulldozer in Alan Wake! My Fallout 4 player character who currently has a rainbow of pixels instead of a face would agree with you. If he could talk.
  19. This, essentially. I think video gaming used to be kind of a niche hobby, and, because of that, a bunch of stereotypes sprung up around it that certainly aren't true anymore, but some people think they are. I've always maintained that if you don't like video games, it's just because you haven't found the right game yet. There's a lot of people out there who think that every video game is like Doom.
  20. Really???? All the tragic stuff that happens in the Metal Gear Solid franchise, and you picked Olga?? For me, it's tied between shooting the Boss at the end of MGS3, and that one part in MGS4 at Meryl's wedding where Otacon tries to explain to Sunny that Snake is going away and not coming back. Thanks for the tears, Kojima!
  21. Oh, that must be from one of the DLCs. I don't have a whole lot of experience with those. Maybe that's for the better? lol See, here's the weird thing. I like puzzle games. I really, really do. But what I can't stand is puzzles in games that don't typically have puzzles. Like, you're going along your merry way, stomping bad guys, looting crates, doing your thing, and BAM, puzzle. It's like my brain has to be in a certain mindset to want to do puzzles, and blowing people up does not put me in that mindset. Like those animal pillars in Skyrim that made me want to cry whenever I saw them. If you can even call those puzzles, I guess.
  22. Wait, there were puzzles in Dragon Age? Which Dragon Age were you playing? xD Basically every Sierra game ever, basically. I can think of so many instances in which the game plonks you in this one area, and you have to pick up this certain item to progress later on in the game. And if you leave the area without picking it up, well, you're screwed, because you can't ever return and huzzah, your game is now unwinnable! I guess the moral is, save early, and save often! And maybe don't play adventure games from the 1980s unless you hate yourself and want to cry.
  23. And I think the general public is getting better at recognizing video games as such, as they become more mainstream and more people play them. Maybe someday this opinion won't be quite so unpopular anymore?
  24. That's actually one of the reasons I stopped following the franchise was because the story got too complicated for a casual fan to keep up with. So many games, so many characters, and so much of the story was hinted at rather than spelled out. I actually think they're in the middle of a reboot right now, but I could be wrong.
  25. I actually read the book and really liked it, before seeing the movie. The problem with the movie was that it was rated PG. When I read the book, what stuck with me the most about it was the shocking violence and how straightforward and stark the descriptions were of the troubles one would face being stranded in the middle of the ocean with a tiger. The minute I saw that the movie was rated PG, I was like, "Oh, no, this is going to be awful." And, surprise, it was another bland, shiny "look at how good our CGI is" movie that everybody forgot about within a year.
